Dromoland Castle, the 16th century luxury castle hotel in County Clare, Ireland has completed its final phase of a full-scale €20 million refurbishment. The Castle’s owners worked under the guidance of members of the Irish Georgian Society to respect Ireland’s architectural heritage. The focus was to preserve the historic charm while enhancing the future legacy of the Castle for generations to come.

Included in the refurbishments were the following: Castle guest rooms and bathrooms, Queen Anne Wing, dining and lounge areas, all public spaces, Spa at Dromoland Castle, indoor pool, new golf carts and pathways, air conditioning units, a new water treatment system, as well as window refurbishments and stone façade repairs. Irish painter, John Brennan, was commissioned for the artwork in the guestrooms; the Celtic inspired paintings’ gold leaves are each applied by hand.

The baronial façade wraps around the interior. Waterford Crystal chandeliers, Venetian silk wall coverings, ancestral oil paintings, hunting mounts and stained glass set the tone. Also included are spacious bedrooms, Egyptian cotton bed linen and modern Irish cuisine.
